don't worry...pregnancy does all kinds of things to us. Can you get a little me time to get your hair done at the salon, sort of like a pick me up? I looked frumpy and downright ugly and my self esteem got so low during my last pregnancy. I wish I had pampered myself. But after the baby was born, DH gave me a spa day gift!! I loved it. Also I am sure in others eyes you still look great. We are always so hard on ourselves

I am having the same problems - these hormones are wrecking my skin! I am just hoping that in the second trimester things even out a little and I start looking a little better

This! All I have is skin that makes me feel like I'm going through puberty all over again. Where is this glow I've heard so much about?

I'm having trouble with cystic acne. I am all about self-esteem and being confident and all that jazz...but seriously, I can't even look in a mirror.

I'm right there with you ladies....i feel like a teenager again with all these breakouts. And they are the giant inside ones that last for weeks and are sooooo sore!
My hair is finally getting back to normal, I just can't wait for my skin to do the same.
And the dark circles under my eyes are def way worst then they were before.
I def don't feel the best about myself

A spa day sounds divine. My skin is breaking out too and my hair is just blah. And being in between most of my clothes (as in most of my normal clothes are too tight and most of my pg clothes are tents) sucks. I have like 4 outfits I can wear comfortably. On top of it I am tired today and have no energy. I need to accomplish SOMETHING to make me feel better but I just don't want to do anything!! Ugh. Pg hormones can really suck.

I am SO there with you ladies. My face is greasy and broken out, my hair gets greasy if I don't wash it within 12-14 hours of the last wash, although it does style better than usual. But I am feeling fat and jiggly, I get really bad eczema so my legs are covered with rashes and yeah...ew.

I've been dealing with the same thing lately! The weight gain that seems to be going to be face isn't helping either. Dull hair and skin, and I'm breaking out awfully on my chin. I have an appt Friday to get my hair highlighted, bought some self-tanner, and gonna give myself a mani/pedi. Feeling a bit like a troll.
